"I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel." Maya Angelou

We all have our own stories. Some are of resilience and how we overcame. Some are of tragedy and how we can’t move on. At the end of the day, I think all each of us wants is to be loved and accepted just for who we are. No matter what your story is, I admire your courage for seeking the support that you need.

I see life like the foundation of a house. As we walk through life, the foundation forms cracks, some are large and some are small. My goal is to help you mend these cracks so you can feel whole and learn strategies to repair the foundation before the cracks grow.

My approach is centered on you. I make every effort for you to feel heard and validated in a non-judgmental space. I am direct and nurturing…assertive and funny…knowledgeable and collaborative. My goal for us is to develop a therapeutic relationship with you where you feel like you can be completely honest and recognize the fact that how I treat you is how you deserve to be treated in all your relationships.

I am Gottman Level 1 trained and have worked with individuals, couples, and groups. I have gained experience helping couples with life cycle transitions, creating intimacy, and developing a deeper bond. I have provided support to individuals with depression, anxiety, identity, attachment, and confidence issues.

When I’m not providing care to my clients, I am usually with my partner and three wonderful kids. We love to go on international excursions to discover new cultures and places. I also love to cook, dance, entertain friends, and eat.

I would be honored to work with you. Please reach out to me at 512/201-4501, ext. 157. I look forward to hearing from you.
